Next week Dell will hold its 2011 Analyst Meeting in Austin, Texas on Tuesday and Wednesday,  June 28th and 29th.  In a departure from previous analyst meetings, the business meeting of this year’s event will begin promptly at 4:00 p.m. CDT on Tuesday afternoon with an executive led solutions expo featuring Dell’s enterprise solutions and services offerings.  Executives will walk participants through our current offerings, customer value proposition and Dell’s differentiation.  A short reception will follow the solutions expo.

On Wednesday we will hear about Dell’s strategy, our solutions domains and Dell’s differentiated go to market approach.  There will also be time for Q&A and conversations with the executive leadership team throughout the event.  The meeting will be webcast live at www.dell.com/investor from 7 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, June 29.

We are executing a growth strategy that’s been in place for two years now and we continue to focus on operating income growth and maximizing profit share.  We’re excited to continue our dialogue with the investment community next week.  Look for us to post a recap of the meeting next week and as always we welcome your comments.
